    Found a 2012 Versys with 1600 miles for $3k. That seems like a sweet deal. Never dropped, clean title. Whattya guys think? Considering for my son to join me in mild adv touring.

    only complaint I've heard about a Versys came from people over 6' tall. Frame is too short for tall people to get comfortable on.....too scrunched up. There was a ride report a few years ago about a girl on one and it worked very well for her. She rode the crap out of it.

    I'm on my second Versys. 30k on round one. Got stupid and sold it. Went to Alaska and all over BC with it.

    Picked up a 14 with 1k on it for $3,400. My opinion is that it is a very underrated bike. I tried the Wee and thought the V is night and day better. I'm 6' and like how it sits. I did lower the pegs to give me a little more leg room. I've done many miles solo and probably 10k two up.

    The cardboard shade is a nice touch.

    Looks like what I'd imagine a serial killer's place to look like.
